Looking forward to Super 8 tourney only wish it were one and done like the state tourney.. Overtime games should play 3 on 3 no shootouts . Very exciting and a goal is usually scored early on.
Just my opinion....top 4 are locks
1. CC been outstanding all year and goaltending must be strong in post season to win it all
2. BCH very talented team and my pick to win it this year
3. Pope Francis tough team to play
4. SJP playing well and top 4
5. Hingham SOS helps
6. Burlington Always a solid team well coached team year after year
Play in games could be any order
7.Andover playing well and inspired with coaches return
8.Arlington not last years talent but well coached
9.St Marys always a tough team to play very gritty
10.Wellesley weak schedule but if lose back to D1 tourney
they need to get rid of the play in games and go back to just top 8.
Super 8 double elimination has to go. Nothing more exciting putting it all on the line for one game ... win you move on and lose season over. Be difficult for most teams to beat BCH or CC 2 straight games.
It’s not that difficult. Before the Super 8, it was run like the NCAA basketball tourney. It worked. Best teams always rose to the top, no marginal Super 8 teams were left out. All conference winners got in and others with seeds for excellent records. At the end of the day, sometimes you had Catholics v. Catholics, other years Publics v. Catholics for the state title. But an exclusionary tournament had to be created called the Super 8 and at the end of the day, three publics, Reading, Hingham and Arlington have won it in the last 10 years, so about 30 percent of the time for publics in the last decade. That’s the reality for anyone that wants to look at the record.
The old tournament format was just fine. Right now you actually have two Div. 1 winners, and that’s also a fact
If MC makes it in can we all agree this thing is a joke?
MC should be in Super 8 if they get in...actually any catholic conference team that qualifies for tournament should get one of the 10 spots
Because those public teams especially Andover are not good.
Your an idiot
YOUR an idiot. Always love the irony in that one.
SJ Shrewsbury proved they belonged the other night. They will suffer the same fate as the rest getting smoked by the two elite teams.
CC & BCH and everyone else gets a participation medal.
The goaltending at CC is everything...hopefully he does not continue to give up soft goals in big games.
CC is 21-1-2 and only given up 14 goals all year. Sounds like you a splitting hairs over a couple of goals.
Isn’t the CC Goalie the kid who Arlington scored on in overtime of the Super 8 Final at the Garden from behind the net?
My belief is that this will be the year they load up on the Publics, a few good deserving teams may be left out if that happens.
